A Palestinian was shot dead by the Israeli army in the occupied West Bank

A Palestinian was killed yesterday at dawn by Israeli army bullets during clashes in Jenin, in the northern occupied West Bank, Palestinian sources confirmed.

The Palestinian health ministry told AFP that Mohammed Marei, 25, “was shot in the chest”.

The Israeli army declared in a statement that “a number of suspects fired explosive devices at the IDF soldiers, who returned fire.”

The incident comes less than a week after the Israeli army kills a 16-year-old Palestinian boy in the northern West Bank city of Salud.

During these Israeli army operations, at least 48 Palestinians and three Arab-Israeli attackers were killed, some of whom were members of armed factions, as well as civilians, including Palestinian journalist Shireen Abu Aqleh, who was following an operation in Jenin. .
